Dylusional - Holtzian Tag.....

Hello Everybody!

It's been quiet on the home front lately and I've been playing in the studio....It's just what I do...LOL!  First, it started with a little top hat that I made.  I painted it black then steampunked it up.... Not happy with the results, I pulled everything off and covered the hat with Tim Holtz tissue tape.  Ahhhh, now it's better...LOL   Once again, it's just what I do....LOL!  The cool thing that happened, the top hat gave me the idea to alter a primitive looking statue.  The hat fit perfectly on her head...So, I'm off to transforming her from a primitive looking "statue thing" to a lady of steampunk something or other!  LOL!  I will share her with you when she is done...

In between reworking the top hat, I pulled out a tag...It's just what I do...LOL!  I sprayed the tag with some Dylusions Spray Inks in Bubblegum Pink, Squeezed Orange, Pure Sunshine and a dash of Cherry Pie.  I then added the numerals from Tim Holtz new Stampers Anonymous Numeric stamp set, added a bit of the new Dylusions Ocean Backgrounds stamp around the edges, bradded on some Tim Holtz-Idea-olgy Numerals...Not being quite done, I stamped the domed plate from Dylusions Monster Mash stamp set onto Acetate and Ranger's Inkssentials Manila card and cut each out to match the original stamped image.  I placed a tissue taped #5 under the dome then headed to my box of goodies and pulled out a key, another mini numeral and the "Know" Idea-ology Word Sticks and attached it to some Dylusional stained Crinkle Ribbon....Last but not least added some Idea-ology Label Letters spelling out..."Know Your No." to some aluminium tags.

So, here's what it ended up looking like.  Hope you like it!  I call it...

  3. Loving the tag. Whenever I see a creation using dylusions it always makes me happy & your tag certainly does.
    Am looking forward to your "lady of steam pumk something or other" with top hat. It sounds cool. Thanks for making me smile on a cold wet miserable morning in the UK. Very much appreciated.

  7. Hi Jim, Lovin' your tag. It took me back to memories of 'The Prisoner' - a T.V. series about a British former secret service agent held prisoner in a mysterious costal village resort, where everyone is referred to by a number & not their name. I think they re-made it for U.S. viewing.
    How did you get an air-brushed look with the Dylusions sprays? I was expecting you to say you used ink pads & a blending mat.
    Hugs, Theresa

  20. I'm glad you "just do what you do!" It produces such outstanding results; love the tag and its vivid colors contrasted against the numbers. It is quite phenomenal how you can get so many different images on one tag and make them mesh seamlessly. Thanks for sharing your talent, Jim.

  26. It's just so happy. You inspired me to take a break and get out some bright colors. I ran to the craft store and bought a set of Dyan's stamps just to play with. My local store doesn't have the inks, but that is okay. I DON'T NEED SOMETHING ELSE TO BUY, JIM! I am using some bright markers while I watch it rain/hail/snow/sunshine. Only in Oregon.......
